State House, Boston – map
On August 12, 2010, faculty and students from the Lesley University/Cambridge Public Schools Compass Program came to Beacon Hill for a visit of the State House. The children enrolled in the program are K-6 students from all over Cambridge. Supervised by student teachers and their mentors, the students spend their summer in the Compass program engaged in various enrichment activities and academic studies.
After their guided tour of the State House, I got a chance to meet the group and speak with them about their experiences. I also spoke with the students about the legislative process and how a bill becomes a law. They were such a bright, inquisitive group, and a pleasure to have!
